Here we go again...

One day at a time is how I think God really wants me to live.

Yesterday, I was told by Elizabeth's pediatrition that she likely has Celiac Disease. This isn't life threatening, but can cause many problems if not properly managaed. It is essentially an allergy or intolerance to gluten. Gluten is in just about everything that we commonly eat in north america, so this can only mean many interesting meals and snacks in my future.

Say a quick prayer for my little girl that she doesn't actually have this disease. We have been referred to the Children's hospital for further testing sometime in the next month or so.

In the meantime, we are living joyfully day by day here. Not much can shake me since the suprise of the twins last year. I just know God will take care of us. He already is.

Actually, a grace-filled moment filled me with peace shortly after I found out. My mind flashed back to my morning prayer time (the first time in months I have been able to have a morning prayer time). I opened my bible (actually my husband's bible because I hadn't prayed for so long in the morning, I had nothing spiritual to read beside my bed), and this is what my eyes were drawn to :

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat (or drink), or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they?

Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span?

Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the way the wild flowers grow. They do not work or spin. But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them.
If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith?
So do not worry and say, 'What are we to eat?' or 'What are we to drink?' or 'What are we to wear?' All these things the pagans seek. Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom (of God) and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.

Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.

Prayers for Elizabeth and your whole family.

I love the passage you've posted. Today is a good day for me to read it. : -)

Praying for you all!! I went through something similar almost 1 yr ago with Z's hives & they discovered a wheat allergy. She still has hives, but it has nothing to do with wheat, so for now, we give her wheat until we hear otherwise. Wheat & gluten are not easy allergies/intolerances to deal with!
